The Motley Fool Emerging Markets Fund seeks exceptional foreign companies at value prices.
We look for high-quality companies with excellent management teams that boast strong financial positions and operate in industries that our management team truly understands. We will invest at least 90 percent of the Fund's net assets in securities issued by foreign companies. We define foreign companies as companies located or organized outside the United States or whose primary business is carried on outside the United States. Our process is identical to the one we rely on for the Motley Fool Global Opportunities Fund and Motley Fool Small-Mid Cap Growth Fund. We perform rigorous, fundamental analysis and dissect each company's strategy, competitive position, operations, and performance. Additionally, we review all pertinent public documents and official communications about the company.
Although we will invest with an intention to hold for the long term, we will also insist on keeping a solid margin of safety on all Fund holdings. As a result, we will sell any holding that we believe has exceeded its intrinsic value.
